be careful not to forget the LORD who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery.

he may heap [it] up, but the righteous will wear [it], and the innocent will divide up his silver.
The house he built is like a moth's [cocoon] or a booth set up by a watchman.
He lies down wealthy, but will do so no more; when he opens his eyes, it is gone.
Terrors overtake him like a flood; a storm wind sweeps him away at night.
An east wind picks him up, and he is gone; it carries him away from his place.
It blasts at him without mercy, while he flees desperately from its grasp.
It claps its hands at him and scorns him from its place.

I will do this,' he said. 'I'll tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and store all my grain and my goods there.
Then I'll say to myself, "You have many goods stored up for many years. Take it easy; eat, drink, and enjoy yourself."'
"But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life is demanded of you. And the things you have prepared-- whose will they be?'
"That's how it is with the one who stores up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God."
